DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – A waterspout was spotted off the coast of Daytona Beach on Oct. 8.
It could be seen just after 3 p.m. looking eastward from the Silver Beach Avenue access point, FOX35 in Orlando reported.
The National Weather Service issued a special marine warning and advised people to take protective actions due to large waves.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says a waterspout is a whirling column of air and water mist. They fall into two categories: fair weather waterspouts and tornadic waterspouts.
If a waterspout moves onshore, the NWS will issue a tornado warning. Fair weather waterspouts typically dissipate rapidly when they make landfall.
